Life is filled with defining moments. Moments that change who we are, not only in that instant, but for the rest of our lives. Moments such as passing your drivers license, or getting married, and even perhaps the moment that has the greatest significance in our lives, the day our first child is born.
I honestly can’t say that I have experienced this yet myself, but based upon what my friends with children have said, I know that this experience is like no other. I suppose that life is the greatest gift we have and to know that you were part of creating a life must be extremely rewarding.
Having a child is supposed to be one of the happiest times in our lives, but what happens if it doesn’t all go to plan. What happens when this happy time turns into a nightmare instead of an exciting adventure?
The truth is whether it is having a baby or winning a race, we all have moments of great joy, but just as quick as that joy came, it can also be taken away and then what do we do?
I came across this really powerful video that seriously challenged my perception of joy, and what it means to truly be grateful for life. It’s one of those videos that remind you that there is no circumstance too big for us to overcome.
The thing that moved me so much about this video is that even though her baby was born without eyes, she still knew that there was hope and that God still had a plan. How easy would it have been to get angry with God and blame him for her situation? Yet, she did the complete opposite. She knew that God was in control.
Isn’t it amazing that when we find ourselves at the lowest of lows, that’s when God is closer to us than ever before? He is the one who gives us strength and I truly believe that He would never put us in a situation we can’t handle.
Perhaps you can relate to this story. Perhaps you find yourself hopeless and lost with no sense of direction. Well I’m here to tell you that there is a God who loves you and never leaves you. He can help you through any situation. All you have to do is trust Him. We may not always understand why things happen, but what we can hold onto the fact that we never have to go through those things alone.
